Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Intensive outpatient programs mostly conduct meetings on weekdays. Group therapy is the main element in most intensive outpatient programs. Most IOPs last for about 90 days and include drug use monitoring and testing. A Louisiana IOP, like what’s offerd at OBrien House, take much more time than a standard outpatient program. Some programs offer other services as well, such as employment assistance and medication management.
Aftercare Support at OBrien House, in short, is the support provided to a patient after they have finished treatment. It allows them to adjust to everyday life. It may entail setting them up and enrolling them in services such as Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) inside a halfway house. Career coaching may also be offered to patients to help them get back into the workforce.
Outpatient rehabilitation is a treatment that exists if a patient is not checking into OBrien House long term. In addition to helping them recover, the patient attends regular therapy sessions and detox and participates in other therapies. However, this is all primarily done from home. As a follow-up to inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment is usually recommended. After rehabilitation, it helps people return to their everyday lives. It may also be an alternative to inpatient care in some situations. If they cannot leave their jobs, children, or don’t have the money for inpatient care, people can choose this method. Inpatient therapy, however, is the best method and most suggested level of treatment offered by OBrien House in recovering from addiction.
Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient’s individual requirements.
